Here comes a documentary from Why Poverty?

The documentary we’re taking a look at here is: Park Avenue: money, power and the American dream - Why Poverty?
PARK AVENUE: How much inequality is too much?
740 Park Ave, New York City, is home to some of the wealthiest Americans. Across the Harlem River, 10 minutes to the north, is the other Park Avenue in South Bronx, where more than half the population needs food stamps and children are 20 times more likely to be killed. In the last 30 years, inequality has rocketed in the US -- the American Dream only applies to those with money to lobby politicians for friendly bills on Capitol Hill.
Here this documentary shows the absolute grandeur that a few people live in, some of the wealthiest in the world, not far from those who live in a condition of poverty. In the beginning of the documentary, the example of a Monopoly game is utilized to show how our current system is operating. This is quite a cool basic way to see what is going on. Where, in the game, everyone starts out with equal money and equal position and so everyone has an ‘equal chance’ to win, from that perspective. Yet in reality, in our current money system, we do not all start from the same position. As you’ll see in the documentary, how does the game go, when it is played more like real life, where you have poor players and rich players. Do the poor players have any kind of a chance? Certainly not an equal opportunity, like is so commonly presented by those that would support the current system, that apparently ‘everyone can make it’.
But this kind of ‘logic’ shows a significant deficit in even the most basic reasoning ability of the human. As can be seen within the example of the Monopoly game as played with poor players and rich player, such a simple demonstration points out what is really blatantly obvious about the current system, that really can be seen with even just the slightest glance at how the system is operating and what people are experiencing and what it takes to ‘make it’ in this system – that all do not have an equal chance, all cannot ‘make it’, and most will not ‘make it’ but will suffer from lack of the basic necessities of physical living. That the game is entirely rigged, so that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, which is exactly what’s happening.
How we can ignore the fact that we know full well that if someone doesn’t have a job, or sufficient income from a job, the result is they will suffer, so knowing that, why have we not ensured that all have a job? All the politicians that say they will work to produce jobs, yet there are people unemployed. Lots of people unemployed. There shouldn’t even be one single person unemployed. Even just one person without a job is a problem as that one person is without a sufficient income to have a dignified life, and not suffer needlessly. Except for those who are unable to work, for which there must be Compassion.
And so there must also be compassion for those who find themselves unemployed, and this why within Equal Money Capitalism will be a Compassion Department, which you can read a bit more about in the Economist’s Journey to Life where it has been mentioned in these posts so far:

Because it’s simple math, it comes down to a simple math equation, that shows that the human does not even comprehend very basic math: Job = survival, no job = no survive, so we know what happens then if someone can’t get a job, it means no money means no survive, so obviously don’t let people die. We’re obviously letting people die, because we didn’t make sure there is A) enough jobs, and B) a back-up plan if something goes wrong. Because the game we’re playing here is no game, it is Life and Death. We are playing a Game with Life and Death. And you would not want your Life and Death to be in such a state of fragility. That is why you cling to your relative comfort, out of Fear, because that comfort is not guaranteed, it is Fragile. Just look how much humanity fear Death, that we live in this fear right up until we do die, and sacrifice our entire lives in this one fear.
I mean, you have the 400 richest in America, equal to 150 million people. This is a massive failure of math. It’s a basic understood math principle that two sides of the equation must add up or there is consequence. One life = one life. No life is worth more than another. When we consider one life worth more than another, we create separation, we create a life that is ‘Worth-less’ where we wouldn’t want to live that life, we want to live the life that is ‘More’, because what we failed to realize that ‘More and Less’ is a Trap that we fell into, and we couldn’t get out to see the obvious solution of ‘the Best life for ALL’. So that no matter who you are, where you are, when you are, what you are, you have the best life possible. Why would we settle for anything less?
